Chiropractic Care for Colorado Springs Back Pain Advised by Harvard

Harvard Health Letter suggests chiropractic for disc herniation back pain.

As the saying goes: “When Harvard talks, people listen.” Yes, that’s a reworked version of the saying, but Harvard’s reputation does get people’s attention. In the November 2017 edition of the Harvard Health Letter, a central article titled “Where to turn for low back pain relief. In most cases, a primary care doctor or chiropractor can help you resolve the problem.” presents back pain and whom back pain sufferers should seek for help. The Harvard recommendation is a chiropractor (like your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR or primary care doctor. Dr. Matthew Kowalski, a chiropractor on staff at Harvard’s Osher Clinical Center for Integrative Medicine at the Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, notes that 35% to 42% of back pain sufferers turn to a chiropractor for their first episode of back pain. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR agrees that many of the Colorado Springs back pain sufferers seeking Colorado Springs chiropractic care do so with a first episode of Colorado Springs back pain.


That first episode of Colorado Springs back pain care is important as to how the first Colorado Springs back pain episode goes as well as how future back pain episodes may be controlled. The goal, of course, would be to put off all future Colorado Springs back pain episodes, but that may not always be realistic. And that is ok, too. There is control. Control of body motions like bending, lifting and twisting. Control of body muscle like exercising what there is (or is not of muscle!) to make it strong and flexible. Control of diet to decrease inflammatory consumption and boost the consumption of joint supporting nutrients. Control is key. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents a well-rounded Colorado Springs treatment plan that comprises these control factors once the current pain eases as Harvard’s newsletter points out, chiropractors like your Colorado Springs chiropractor uses hands-on spinal manipulation (particularly Cox Technic at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR) and exercise, diet and stretching programs to reduce back pain. It is truly a whole-body approach!


The chiropractor as the first episode consultant understands back pain and the options appropriate to help. As Harvard’s Dr. Kowalski makes clear, the well-trained chiropractor (and your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is!) will direct your case. If the back pain sufferer should require another form of care, the chiropractor will coordinate that care and appointment should that be with a neurologist, physiatrist, physical therapist, pain management doctor, or spinal surgeon. Chiropractors work agreeably with all these of  healthcare specialists. For back sprains/strains and herniated discs, Harvard’s health newsletter says that “a visit to your primary care physician or chiropractor may be all it takes to feel better.”


With that recommendation, you may be interested in to this PODCAST about a patient whose care included medical and chiropractic physicians with tests, medications, and even a surgical consultation arranged by the medical doctors as well as chiropractic spinal manipulation (Cox Technic) to the patient’s advantage and back pain relief helping him avoid back surgery.
